    Whos making the 18 hp? Is it subaru? I looked at a subaru a few months ago (dont remember the hp on it) and the dealer talked me out of it because the dont carry parts and dont know how to work on the subarus

    Merry christmas Mr Rod Father:waving: I think it will be in front of a zero turn like the 16 Horse on giant vac's. If it is a push type, it will be to heavy to push for hills or deeper grass.

    I'll try to fnd out which motor. I would expect Honda given the small weight increase.

    John, I used both my LW 10hp and the 13HP Force on a Blower Buggy off the back of my Gravely Z this fall. Talk about making life simple! (while increasing efficiency too)

    Cool! Where are the pictures? I would LOVE to see how the bracket is mounted on the back of the mower. This would work well.

    The motor was a 18hp B&S Vanguard. No pictures (yet) unfortunately.
